Chorizo and Seafood Paella

Sometimes you are so hungry that you don't take enough pictures. But believe me, this paella was so good, please try it!

Ingredients serves 4-5

- 1 onion

- 2 cloves of garlic

- 2 chopped tomatoes

- 1 diced bell pepper

- 1 chili

- 150g chorizo sausage

- 100g of shrimp

- 9-12 clams

- 750ml Chicken stalk

- Olive oil

- 250 g of Paella rice ( you can also use risotto rice)

- 2 tablespoons of Paella spice mix (contains: saffon, smoked paprika, cumin, turmeric, black pepper, cayenne pepper, rosemary)

- Bunch of Parsley

- 1-2 Lemons


First, over medium heat start by placing your cut chorizo meat on the pan and add oil if necessary but normally the chorizo meat let’s out a lot of fat already.

Once they have cooked for 5-7 minutes remove them.

With the left-over oil cook the chopped onion, bell pepper, chili and garlic. After this add the chopped tomatoes and cook until you have a loose paste consistency and remove it from the pan.

Now with a little bit of olive oil cook your rice on the pan until it goldens a bit.

Heat the chicken stalk in a separate pot.

Add the paste and chorizo back into the pan and cover the rice with a little bit of chicken stalk. To this mixture add 1 tablespoon of the paella seasoning.

Every time you notice the water evaporating add a little more + the other tablespoon of your paella seasoning mix.

Optional: add a dash of white wine to bell pepper, tomatoe, onion mixture.

Side note: If you can’t find all the different spices then one tablespoon of smoked paprika and ½ teaspoon of saffron will also work + salt and pepper to taste

Who are the chefs?

I hope I will someday be the mother in law of this beautiful and smart girl.

Nicole is a multinational and multitalented young woman. Her roots are in Finland, Italy, Ecuador, etc..

With our son Eric, they have a tremendous passion for food. (One of the many)

This time some Spanish music was playing and all I could hear was the noise of the cutting knife and the cheerful sound of the frying pan.

I was very happy to do the dishes, after all.

Buen apetito amigos!


I like to play with the thought that someday Nicole and Eric will have their own restaurant called D`Ercole and me and Romina (mother of Nicole) will entertain the customers. Something to hope for when getting older!
